The branch I worked at was great... can't say that about others
ISSR (Former Employee) –  Weyburn, SK26 April 2017
Overall good company. Inconsistent on firing practices in my opinion. People still employed after blatantly breaking company policies and laws, which affects job performance and customer service, while others make a small mistake unrelated to job performance and are let go.
Pros
Local branch management fantastic
Cons
Upper management inconsistent
